Patent

In 1881, a patent for a "Life Saving Apparatus" was issued to black American inventor, James Wormley (U.S. No. 242,091). The invention "consists in a float or number of floats attached to the free end of a rope, which at that end has one or more eyes and runs out as the ship moves through the water, in combination with a lock and cast-off mechanism consisting essentially of a sliding rod at the ship's side, provided with projecting arms, which, in their normal position, are passed through each eye in the rope, but which disengage therefrom by a movement of the sliding rod which is controlled, through a suitable intervening mechanism, by a hand-lever at the ship's wheel."«[Image: detail from patent diagram showing midsection of vessel showing floats stored along ship's bulwarks.]

A Confident Genius

A proud and confident genius makes a bet with an idiot.

The genius says, "Hey idiot, every question I ask you that you don't know the answer, you have to give me $5. And if you ask me a question and I can't answer yours I will give you $5,000."

The idiot says, "Okay."

The genius then asks, "How many continents are there in the world?" The idiot doesn't know and hands over the $5.

The idiot says, "Now me ask: what animal stands with two legs but sleeps with three?"

The genius tries and searches very hard for the answer but gives up and hands over the $5,000.

The genius says, "Dang it, I lost. By the way, what was the answer to your question?"

The idiot hands over $5.
